2016 Victoria Plum calendar 2

Here are the next 4 pages of my calendar. On the first 2 I used glitter gel pens to colour in the background, On the second 2 pages I used Tim Holtz distress inks smooshed onto a sheet then used a paintbrush to paint them on the page.

Gift basket and paper.

I made this basket and matching paper for our Christmas gift exchange at our Christmas party for ACTSA ( ACT stamp artists). I made the basket out of light coloured card which I used Tim Holtz distress ink on and stamped a pattern in black ink. When I finished the basket I decided to make some matching paper to wrap my gift in.
